Digitized from a shellac record, at 78 revolutions per minute. Four stylii were used to transfer this record.They are 3.8 mil truncated conical, 2.3 mil truncated conical, 2.8 mil truncated conical, 3.3 mil truncated conical. These were recorded flat and then also equalized with Turnover: 375.0, Rolloff: -12.0.
The preferred version suggested by an audio engineer at George Blood, L.P. is the equalized version recorded with the 2.3 mil truncated conical stylus, and has been copied to have the more friendly filename.

Loosely based in the exotica of Eastern themes, Alfredito and His Orchestra’s “Chop Suey Mambo” is a groovy jam. The song’s opening is reminiscent of jazz and pop music singer Peggy Lee’s more widely known “The Siamese Cat Song” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlQYqQs0R3w) from Disney’s 1955 Lady and the Tramp.
